If you are an ACM member as well as a SIGHPC member, you should have received an email from ACM's elections independent management firm notifying you of your eligibility to place your vote for SIGHPC's elected officers. This is the first SIGHPC election, so your vote is important. Information on the candidates is available at the ACM elections site to help you make an informed decision.
If you are both an ACM and SIGHPC member and have not yet received your ballot, first check your spam filter for a message from "email@example.com." For additional help, contact ACM's Monique Chang (firstname.lastname@example.org).
